Manager of the MC5, co-founder of the White Panther Party, marijuana martyr, Delta blues scholar, subject of a John Lennon song — John Sinclair may just be one of the most interesting people to live the '60s to the fullest and still have the grey matter to talk about it. That he can, and in an engaging, lucid manner, may just make him a bona fide national treasure. Pulling double duty Friday night, Sinclair, David Kimbrough Jr. and Dwayne Burnside (sons of Junior and R.L., respectively) visit the Clinton School for a lecture and Q&A entitled “North Mississippi Blues: Reflections from the Hill Country” (full disclosure: I'm moderating this event) before hightailing it to White Water for a Sinclair/Kimbrough/Bluesboy Jag triple bill that's sure to sell out.
